Did you know that when movies are recorded on set, they only record the actor’s voices? They don’t record cars going by, or people talking in the background, or footsteps or anything.
So when a movie has animals in it, how do those sounds get recorded? For one thing, the filmmakers almost never record the animals themselves doing the sounds!
Instead, there’s a job called a foley artist, and they use really crazy ways to record the sounds you see animals making in movies.
Like if you see Manny the woolly mammoth walking in Ice Age, you’re actually hearing a tree stump wrapped in leather being dropped on the ground!
